When I was growing up I remember how cool it was if I saw a famous Buffalo Bills or Sabres player in public. There's an unwritten rule that you don't bother them in public, especially if they're eating or shopping, but when you're a little kid it's a bit more forgiving.

Living in Hamburg for five years and now living on the border of Lackawanna, I have seen a few Bills players out and about over the last 8-10 years. I once saw Stevie Johnson checking out at the Walmart on Southwestern Blvd. in Hamburg back in late 2013.

Apparently, a current Bills starter was spotted eating at one of Buffalo's most famous Italian restaurants on Tuesday.

Jim Miller, the host of the "Overreaction Podcast" here in Buffalo, was doing a show with Pat Moran and Nate Geary on Tuesday evening at Mulberry Italian Ristorante in Lackawanna, and they spotted Bills tight end, Dawson Knox!

Knox is a pretty easy guy to spot in public. Well over six feet tall and that signature curly hair, most Bills fans would spot him, especially in a great restaurant such as Mulberry.

I've eaten at Mulberry's a few times but sadly, I've never seen a Bills player. I do know that beloved former Bills quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick adores Mulberry's and always stops back to eat there whenever he's in town.

By the way, Fitzpatrick will be back in town the weekend of September 26th, when the Washington Football Team plays at Highmark Stadium against the Bills. Maybe you'll see Fitz the night before at Mulberry.

LOOK: See how much gasoline cost the year you started driving

To find out more about how has the price of gas changed throughout the years, Stacker ran the numbers on the cost of a gallon of gasoline for each of the last 84 years. Using data from the Bureau of Labor Statistics (released in April 2020), we analyzed the average price for a gallon of unleaded regular gasoline from 1976 to 2020 along with the Consumer Price Index (CPI) for unleaded regular gasoline from 1937 to 1976, including the absolute and inflation-adjusted prices for each year.

Read on to explore the cost of gas over time and rediscover just how much a gallon was when you first started driving.
